Congratulations to our March Coloring Contest Winners!

Posted By on Fri, Apr 5, 2019 at 11:37 AM

This month’s submissions dazzled our judges with a radiant palette of pastels — perfect for spring. Eight-year-old Hayden’s violet elephant soared in a rainbow sky, buoyed by a handful of fat balloons. Joni, 4, made her masterpiece sparkle with glittering gold-and-green stars. Nine-year-old Josie’s pink and purple elephant Penelope carefully balanced on a tightrope beneath an umbrella held by a curved trunk.

In our March issue, we asked kids to write a poem with the title, “The Luckiest Kid in the World” in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Below, find the winning entries. Elise and Viyana each receive a $25 gift certificate to Crow Bookshop in Burlington.

Elise O’Brien, 10
East Montpelier


If I were the luckiest kid in the world, I would use my luck to help animals,
I would find them all homes,
I would find them ahome where they are happy,
I would find them homes where people take good care of them,
I would find them a home where they can run and play,
I would find them homes where they can be with their owners,
I would find them a home where they want to stay,
I would find them homes where there are people that love them,
I would adopt some of the animals too!


Viyana Khabbazian, 10
South Burlington


Another year, another way, to get some cash on St. Patty’s Day.
A pot of gold, I was determined to find,
I would search up and down with an open mind.
And then I saw what I hoped to see,
A glistening rainbow staring down at me.
At that very moment, I knew hat to do,
That rainbow wasn’t out of the blue.
I followed that rainbow, I went high and low.
And at the end you won’t believe what I found,
Right there on the ground was a pot of gold.
And now I was certain, as certain as I ever could be,
The luckiest kid in the world is me!
